Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum, and I apologize if anything goes wrong from my side.

Here is the story. Last month I bought a new Karbonn A12* (Star) from Flipkart, and it came with Android 4.4.2. For the last one month I have been trying to figure out rooting the device, but alas nothing has worked so far. This is my first Android device, and so curious to know how to root or if here is anyone who could help me out rooting it.

If you need to know further about firmware specification I can provide below.

  1. you need to install drivers for your phone on your Windows PC.
  2. Download and install SRS One Click Root on your PC.
  3. On your phone, go to Settings > Developer Options and tick USB Debugging to enable it.
  4. make sure USB Storage is turned on
  5. Open SRS One Click Root app on PC. Select the option that says Root Device (SmartRoot).
  6. After a while, your phone will ask if you want to install the application SRS Root is sending you over ADB.
    7.Tick the checkbox and select Install.
  7. When a popup appears on your phone asking you to choose the exploit, select Install SuperSU and click on Bormir.
  8. Success message will be displayed on your phone as well as PC.
  9. Reboot your phone and check if you are rooted.
